One Man, One Guitar

No recording tricks.

I'll admit, I spent the better part of 13 and 14 trying to play this without success.



And check out the right sidebar tune also. Smokin.

  4. Hey Kid - anything Ray Charles or Chet Atkins touch is pure gold. I miss them both. My brother used to play the guitar lick in your post. I have no idea how he did it because I never really knew him well but he could shurnuff play that song!

  6. DeanO, Good on your bother. You gotta play it fingerstyle that's for sure. I was trying it with a single string pick (plectrum to be official about it ) and one or two of my other fingers depending on which part I was playing.

    Interesting note it that Tommy Emmanuel who was going to play like Chet hell or high water when he was young Never heard of a thumb pick and he actually learned how to do it with the plectrum.

    Example tune Endless Road.

  7. Bunni, I'm going to have to take that as a compliment you know !

    And you're right, it's all manufactured now. The vast majority is anyway.

  8. DeanO, I wonder if Chet and Ray ever met, let alone did any informal jamming. Ray Loved country music, and once he got out of his original contract he was able to start putting out tunes like Georgia on My Mind.
